Retractable awning frames typically have hinged arms that allow for extension. Many retractable models are fully adjustable, providing tremendous flexibility in how much shade they provide. The awning fabric rolls up where the unit is attached to the building, with the roll often housed in a protective cover. Retractable awnings are often operated by a durable motor controlled by a wireless remote or hard-wired switch; manual operation with a long-handled crank or pull cord is a lower-cost option.
Awnings are roof-like shelters installed on a home’s exterior to shade windows from the sun’s heat, glare, and damaging ultraviolet rays. Awnings can also shade outdoor living spaces. By blocking the sun’s radiation outside of the home, awnings can be far more effective than interior blinds and shades. Awnings are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Stationary awnings are typically made of a durable fabric like Sunbrella or Weblon. They usually have a fixed aluminum or galvanized frame.
